The game was designed by twin brothers Chris White and Mike White. Chris is the founder and president of White Labs, a yeast manufacturing company serving the beer and wine industries. His career spans an era commonly regarded as the renaissance of great beer in the United States. Mike is a journalist and beer fan.
Mike and Chris tested the game with beer and non-beer fans at pubs, airports and beer festivals across the country. Brewers made sure the ingredient cards reflected reality, while others just made sure the game was fun. It was difficult to tell who had a better time -- the beer experts, or their friends who knew little or nothing about beer, at least when the games began.
The testing process included a thorough mathematical analysis. Mathematician and professor Gregory Leibon played more than 1 million games via computer. The results proved that, yes, Belgians are by far the most difficult beer to brew.
